There are few places more spiritual than the Himalayas, and few kingdoms more mysterious than Bhutan. One of the last pristine mountain cultures on earth, this ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ between India and Tibet is a country riven with deep, pine-clad valleys, where ancient monasteries cling to steep hillsides and snow-tipped ranges wrapped in mist rise dramatically into the crystal clear air. The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is unlike any other tourist destination; sheltered from the rest of the world high up in a nook of the Himalayas. From soaring mountains in the north to low-lying plains in the south, the dramatic valleys and lush mountainsides are home to a Buddhist populace who are fiercely proud of their ancestry yet are welcoming and respectful to travellers.
Climate Bhutan can be visited year round, although the most pleasant weather occurs from March to May and October to November. The winter months between December and February are particularly magical, characterised by refreshingly crisp days and blue skies with occasional snowfall, whilst the temperature drops further at night. The lush summer months are an ideal time to view the wildflowers.
